A year ago we found out we were expecting baby #2! We were so excited. Little did we know that baby #3 was also being knitted together and how much our lives would change in one short year. We are so blessed and know we have a lot to be thankful for. I am very excited to welcome 2010!
Well, once again, I have a lot of catching up to do on posts. We have been very busy the past few weeks so I have not had the time to sit down and blog much! Maybe tonight once the boys go to sleep and James and I watch football and the NYE countdown.
I hope everyone has a safe New Years celebration tonight!
Happy New Years!!

Last year we started an annual get together with some of our close friends, the Griswold's Family Christmas Party. Since then the Y Family has left us, and moved to TX, but they were there in our hearts! :) We have started a tradition of frying a turkey, a spread full of all the sides, and you must come dressed to impress!!! We have such great friends here in Raleigh and are thankful for the B, L, M, S, and C families!
The B Family in our best holiday attire!
James shirt was homemade from last year, my shirt was a homemade shirt of Haley's from 1999, and Aidan's shirt was one of Timmy's when he was little!
I think Landon is on the left, and Grayson is on the right.
The girls with a few of the new babies....( we miss you Meredith!)
Some more random pictures from the night....
This year between the 6 of us, we added 7 new babies to the mix! The bring the total to 6 moms, 6 dads, and 13 kids! It was CRAZY! We had a great time and can't wait for next year!!

Aidan's preschool class had their Christmas Program last week. I am so impressed that their teachers got 20 two year olds to stand on stage, shake bells, while singing Jingle Bells. (Well, except for the kid running in the chorus seats behind the stage and my little man who decided to sit down half way through the song). It was perfect!

Just some fun pictures of my boys over the last week. I am so proud of Aidan, he is such a sweet, loving big brother. I love seeing this.... (Grayson and Aidan)
Having a moment. Look at Aidan's hand. :)
The reason you don't see Landon here is because he would much rather be in the baby bjorn than laying down on the floor. So, I was holding him while they were playing. He is a little stubborn!
Here is the little guy when his brothers were napping. Working on tummy time trying to stay off that head!
They are just starting to "see" each other. It is so funny to watch their bobble heads work really hard to make eye contact with each other. They are both getting so strong and really starting to use their arms to push themselves up!

Aidan finally had enough hair to justify getting his hair cut at 2.5 years old! He really could have gone even longer, but I was ready to get it cleaned up. We went to this fun kids place where he was able to sit in an airplane, pick out a movie (Barney, of course) and then play on the playgroud when he was done. Overall, it was a very successful event!
Whoever came up with this idea must have been a parent.....

It is so hard to believe theses guys are already 3 months old! They are getting to such a fun age!
Grayson is my laid back baby who likes the swing and sleeps better than his brother. Grayson has started sleeping through the night on some nights, and takes some pretty good naps during the day. He is such a sweet heart and loves to sleep on James chest. (Grayson is on the right below)
Landon is my cuddler. He loves to be held and prefers to sleep that way. He is a big flirt and likes to smile at all the ladies! He has also started laughing (at 3.5 months). He isn't a fan of naps because he doesn't want to miss anything (sounds like his mom)! He is the most beautiful bright eyed baby who prefers sleeping in my bed than with his brother in their crib.
These feet are growing too fast!

So I totally forgot about these pictures I took on Thanksgiving.....
Aidan and Corey playing with Corey's train from when he was 2!
We put up our tree and all the decorations the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Aidan was a big help this year (minus the 3 ornaments he broke by throwing them across the kitchen floor-thank god for super glue!)
